"Chasing Kid Rock" Homepage
No, I'm not actually "chasing" Kid Rock.
Of all the questions that readers ask authors, two of the most frequent are: (1) where did you get the idea for your story? and (2) how long did it take to write? So, in an attempt to answer those questions—and maybe a few others—I created this Diary.
The text on these pages is an ongoing account of my latest project, a mainstream fiction novel with the working title of Chasing Kid Rock (or CKR). If you’re an aspiring author or if you’ve enjoyed my other stuff, then read on. But be forewarned: I might come dangerously close at times to revealing too much of the story and I’m bound to say the f-word at least once.
(And if that offends you--OR IF YOU'RE UNDER 18--hit your BACK button now.)
If you think you can handle it, I thank you in advance and sincerely hope you find this entertaining as well as helpful.
There are some who would say I’m crazy for putting this out there. What if another writer steals my idea and gets to the bookshelves before I do? But you and I both know that won’t happen because you’re an honest person and I can trust you.
Besides, nobody can write this book like I can.
So why worry?
